How it works

Our team is available 24/7 to perform migrations for you. We've moved tens of thousands of websites from other hosts to our company WHMcPanel. You can order as many migrations as you want, whenever you want, at any frequency you want. We can usually start right away.

1. Place your order

First, place an order for your new web hosting plan through our website. It could be for any of our product plans. If you are not sure which plan suits your need, talk to our support.

2. Request the migration

The migration requests can be submitted safely through your client area and accessible as soon as you have an account. You choose the package you want to migrate to the website and then provide us with any information about the site you think is appropriate and any migration requirements.

We'll need access information to your current hosting provider. See the details below for what we need. The migration request will start a communication thread with an agent, so we will ask if we need anything else.

3. Preview and complete

Depending on the type of migration you requested, we may provide you with a preview link to test the site. Once you are happy to migrate your site, you can update the name servers or DNS on your domain to point to the new server.

Our nameservers are:

  • ns1.whmcpanel.com
  • ns2.whmcpanel.com
  • ns3.whmcpanel.com
  • ns4.whmcpanel.com

These work with all our shared, reseller, and dedicated servers - on top of our global Anycast DNS cluster. We also offer Whitelabel as well as custom nameservers for resellers.

Websites Preview

We can provide a preview proxy link to test the website, but the best way to preview a website is by setting file hosts on your computer. Read our knowledge base guides about websites preview.

Reseller & bulk transfers

If you transfer many websites, such as a full reseller account from another provider, we can migrate in bulk.

Transferring multiple cPanel accounts

Operating multiple cPanel accounts, you will likely have WHM access (Web Host Manager). You may have this as a reseller or as a root. Either way, the best way for us to transfer sites is to backup cPanel and restore them to our servers. It maintains the folder structure, emails, FTP accounts, etc. it provides a single backup file in .tar .gz format. We can restore it to our system.

If you have access to root to your current system, we can automatically copy all accounts remotely. However, in most cases, you'll likely have access to WHM for the reseller only. For this, we can script a remote migration using the cPanel API.

If this fails, we can back up each cPanel separately and transfer it.

We suggest that all migrations be made from one resource at once. However, you can provide us with a list of users to do standalone.

If you have many sites, you may want to do this in one go or spread them out. We can work at your pace.

eCommerce Migrations

Transferring an online store with transactional data is a delicate process.

The online store transaction data is stored in a database, and as part of the website migration, we have to make a copy of the database and restore it to a new system. If an order goes to the current location during the migration process, it may be possible for the copied database not to include that order.

It's one of the sensitive areas that make eCommerce site moves (using WooCommerce, Magento, Prestashop, and OpenCart) more difficult than static websites. Other features include IP that allows payment gateways and PCI compliance approval if you accept or store card data.

eCommerce sites, usually going to our Premium or dedicated server packages, are migrated with special care. We can use a couple of methods to ensure that transaction data is not lost during the migration process, even during DNS deployment. Our migration team can completely handle this on your behalf - tell us that you have a transactional eCommerce site in the migrations request.

Frequently Asked Questions

How quickly can you migrate to a website?

Normally, we can start migrations immediately, and most migrations are completed within a few hours. Normally, the thing that slows us down the most is the speed of the old hosting provider. However, if you plan a migration, it is always best to plan for a few days to protect against unexpected problems.

What details do you need?

We'll need access to your current hosting control panel and FTP access to your site files. To migrate emails from platforms other than cPanel, you'll need current mailbox passwords so we can initiate an IMAP copy.

Will my site or emails go down?

The answer to this question is no - your website and emails will not go down during the migration process. The site will still be accessible from your current host until the site is migrated, after which we will change the nameserver to point to us. At no point will the site be down or inaccessible.

Can I see the site before switch over?

Yes, we will give you different ways to preview/test the site before changing the nameservers to point to us. It allows you to see if everything works well or if something doesn't seem quite right on the migrated site. Our migration team will fix any issues you might find.

Can you migrate from custom control panels?

Yes, our support team can transfer from any hosting provider where we have access. We migrate from many custom control panel providers, including Dreamhost, Ionos, Tsohost, 20i & more.

What to do once the migration is completed?

We will let you know it's time to switch over the nameservers. If the domain is transferred to us, we can change it for you. Once you are happy that everything has been moved and the site works well, you can cancel your service with the old provider. You will now be fully live with WHMcPanel!
